    Day in a Canoe with Antony Davies: Professor of Economics at Duquesne University

    Day in a Canoe with Antony Davies: Professor of Economics at Duquesne University

    In this episode, Nathan and Antony Davies discuss:
     
    How to create change from an economic perspective.  Sustainable incentives. Debts and government involvement in debt. The motivation behind writing his upcoming book, Cooperation and Coercion  
      
     
    Key Takeaways:
     
    −The fundamentals of economics boils down to two things; all things have a trade-off and all people respond to incentives.
     
    -The money the government spends without increasing the taxes will be taxed to unborn generations who will have to pay that debt despite having a say in this inherited debt.
     
    −It is the government failing to do its job that is causing the short-term incentive problem, including the impact on the environment from companies.
     
    −The biggest myth is that the government owes $23 trillion. The debt is much greater. That $23 trillion is just the federal government.
     
     
     
    “The largest problem with the debt is that politicians have figured out a way to tax people who can't vote. And that's effectively what debt is." — Antony Davies

You don’t have to rush them, you just have to do them.

Morning Commute Much Better!

I was introduced to this podcast by a close friend. I only have a few podcasts I listen to on a regular basis, so always looking for new quality content. These are very digestible, informative, and fun. A great addition to my morning commute. One of few I have actually subscribed to!

Exactly what I was looking for.

This podcast is perfect for me because it is short, has principle, and it has real world examples. Very intriguing show with some great guests. I look forward to hearing a lot more.
